At left is a VIBCO VS-190 Silent Turbine, Pneumatic Vibrator installed in a Food Products company.

See cases below for various examples of Dahnke Sales application solutions.

PROBLEM: Customer has a Hapman conveyor as part of a shot transfer system. The shot gets loaded in the pipes while the Hapman refills the machine. The problem is that the shot gets sticky with oil.

SOLUTION: An SCR-100 was mounted on the Hapman transfer chute/hopper.

VIBCO Industrial Vibrator Application

PROBLEM: This company bends muffler pipes using a shot system. They fill the pipes with shot, cap, then bend them. The shot keeps the pipes from creasing. However, getting the shot out can be difficult.

SOLUTION: The customer devised an application design that included an SCR-500. The design allows the operator to stand up the shot-filled pipes, then vibrates loose the shot on the smaller end of the pipes.

VIBCO Industrial Vibrator Application

PROBLEM: Customer has a small batch plant which has several large bins of materials that open and dump onto a conveyor belt. The system is on demand and PLC controlled. The problem was that the material flow was sluggish.

SOLUTION: A 55-2 piston was installed. This effectively speeds the material flow.

PROBLEM: Customer's vacuum unloads chemicals from a railcar on a daily basis. The vibrators they had been using were noisy and required continual lubrication.

SOLUTION: A CCW-5000 was installed on a free trial basis. It was much quieter, used less air, and required no lubrication. Customer bought four.

PROBLEM: Customer had a problem with build-up on the inside or a lime tank.

SOLUTION: We mounted a 2P-200 to the skip-welded "C" channel. Especially in the humid summer months, the 2P-200 keeps the operators from needing to beat on the bin with a sledge hammer.

PROBLEM: Customer tried everything on this lime fines bin to reduce and discharge dust. Even air lines for air pads are visible here. However, the air pads and other attempts did not work.

SOLUTION: Two 2P-200s were installed on VIBCO-recommended channels. This was combined with a 2P-150 on the other side. The customer can now discharge the fines even in humid summer months.

PROBLEM: Customer has a cement powder batch hopper that has a poor flow situation. The cement did not all flow out without additional, manual help.

SOLUTION: Customer installed a 50-2 piston that runs off the same solenoin as the gate. Materials flow out the hopper completely and much faster.

PROBLEM: Customer had a 12 inch square by 10 foot long transfer chute to carry pebble lime from a day hopper to a loss-in-weight feeder. Lime dust was building up inside the chute.

SOLUTION: Customer installed a VS-320 and linked it to the opening of the slide gate valve, keeping the chute clean and speeding the flow of lime.

PROBLEM: Materials were not flowing out of media bins designed with a very low angle sloped side. Operators actually had to climb up on a fork lift to shovel contents out, creating a very hazardous situation.

SOLUTION: Vibco VS-250s were mounted on each of the 6 media bins, along with a quick disconnect air line. The solution saves time and is much safer.

PROBLEM: The low angle design on a slide gate transfer chute causes materials to build up on the slope, thereby contaminating the next batch of material.

SOLUTION: Customer mounted a VS-320 on a small channels section. The vibrator turns on when the slide gate opens.

PROBLEM: The customer had designed and built a conveyor to settle "yogurt sticks" in a box. They needed a vibrator with the proper amount of amplitude to settle and straighten the product.

SOLUTION: After several tries with a turbine, the customer found a solution in the VIBCO SCR-400. It physically was the right size, and it provided the proper amount of amplitude.

PROBLEM: A Hapman conveyor is used at this located to add macadamia nuts to a food product. The nuts are very oily, however, and tend to stick and bridge.

SOLUTION: The customer mounted a Vibco 2P-75 to one of the legs of the plastic bin. Just a small amount of vibration was needed to keep the nuts flowing to the auger, and this vibrator provides just the right amount.

PROBLEM: Parts coming off of a finishing mill would not slide down a chute to a conveyor belt because the slope was not steep enough.


SOLUTION: A VS-250 was mounted to a support bar that transferred the vibration to the "slide plate."

PROBLEM: A 40 cubic foot hopper used in packaging salt was not flowing fast enough to keep up with the down stream equipment.

SOLUTION: Customer bolted on a 2P-450 Vibco Vibrator to the bin and mounted it on a long channel to spread out the vibration.
